Hélène Picard holds a PhD in management from Université Paris-Dauphine, and is now a Researcher for the Chair with a specialization on questions related to Well-being at work / Mindfulness and a strong interest in the innovative  resources that are put in place by companies working towards Economic Peace. Her doctoral research studied the emergence and the practical effects of managerial innovations such as so-called “liberated companies”, to understand in-depth the lived consequences of such discourses that promote the abolition of authoritarian postures at work. Hélène is also very interested in the issue of speech in organization, and the subjective and intersubjective experience people have of these phenomena, in order to develop forms of organizing and working that may be more respectful of actors and subjects in the workplace. She has published in international journals such as M@n@gement and the Revue Française de Gestion.
